Capo 3

         G       
In a bar in Toledo Across from the depot,
                                                D7
On a bar stool she took off her ring.
    D                                D7
I thought I'd get closer, So I walked on over,
  D                  D7               G     
I sat down and asked her name.
                   G
When the drinks finally hit her, She said I'm no quitter,
                        G7            C     
But I finally quit livin on dreams.
        D                                   
I'm hungry for laughter And here ever after
       D                                         G
I’m after whatever the other life brings.

            G
In the mirror I saw him And I closely watched him
                                                   D7
I thought how he looked out of place.
      D                                   D7
He came to the woman Who sat there beside me,
     D                   D7               G
He had a strange look on his face.
               G
Now his big hands were calloused, He looked like a mountain,
                         G7                 C
For a minute I thought I was dead,
       D                                 D
But he started shaking, His big heart was breaking
                     G
And he turned to the woman and said :

                     C
You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille
                                                                    G
With four hungry children and crops in the field.
 C
I've had some bad times, lived through some sad times,
                                                    G
But this time your hurting won't heal,
                      D                 D7               G     - A
You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille.

  A      
After he left us I ordered more whisky,
                                                             E
I thought how she'd made him look small,
             E7                                       E               
From the lights of the bar room To a rented hotel room
     E7                    E            A     
We walked without talking at all.

          A
Now she was a beauty, But when she came to me,
                                     A7               D    
She must have thought I'd lost my mind.
           E                                            E7               
‘Cause I couldn’t hold her, The words that he told her,
          E                E7             A
Kept coming back time after time

                     D     
You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille,
                                                                    A   
With four hungry children and crops in the field.
 D                   
I've had some bad times lived through some sad times,
                                                  A
But this time the hurting won't heal,
                      E                 E7               A    
You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille.
